Let us just start off by saying despite the name this is not just a steam rally, so don't let that put you off if you're not into it!

At the event will be masses of old steam traction engines and a vintage and classic car display along with motorcycles. In addition there is a model show, a variety of market stalls, entertainment for children, including an amazing fairground. It's a great fun weekend, and a chance for a cheap weekend's camping with masses to do.

Entertainment including amazing Old-Time Fairground, Bouncy Castles, Falconry Experience, Punch & Judy, Dizzy Wizzard, Heanor Gate Steel Band and we are welcoming back the ever popular J C Balls Digger Dance Team who will be appearing on both days of the show. On Sunday only there will be camel racing in the main arena. All Day & Evening catering facilities.

There is a licensed bar on the rally site (not the camping field). The fairground and some stalls are open Saturday night with full catering and the bar. There is entertainment in the beer tent both Friday and Saturday night. The whole event is designed to be family friendly and they welcome children.

More Information

The show is held in the grounds of Elvaston Castle Country Park, just south-east of Derby, and comprises a castle along with over 200 acres of woodlands, parkland and formal gardens and is worth a visit just for that! As well as visiting the rally, you can enjoy wonderful walks around the grounds.

Generators are permitted but can only be run between 10am and 6pm. You need to tell the stewards you wish to use one when you arrive. You will be pitched in a seperate area if you are using a genny.

Elvaston Castle Steam Rally Limited reserve the right to refuse admission.

Some information about what happens once you arrive at the show:

Please arrive AFTER 1pm. The gates may be locked before that time and there's nowhere to park on the lane. There's a big Asda nearby in Spondon so you could park there or in the Co-op car park in Borrowash at the top of the lane leading to the rally should you have mis-timed your arrival. If you park in the main Castle car park you will be charged. Please don't enter before 1pm even if the gates are open as we have young cadets working in the field before noon. If you do go onto the camping field before noon you will be directed to the pay and display Castle car park opposite.

On arrival you will be given a registration slip to fill in so please bring a pen!

If you have a blue badge PLEASE wave it at the stewards who will give you your registration form otherwise you WILL be in the wrong place.

Again, if you have a genny, please tell the stewards on arrival or you may end up in the wrong place and not be able to use it.

Likewise if you're needing to either reserve a pitch for friends or are joining friends already there tell the gate steward and make arrangements for your friends to meet you.

Once you're clutching your registration form you will be directed to your pitch. You can then get set up, have a cuppa at your leisure then take the completed form back to the stewards who will exchange it for your envelope containing your camping passes and wristbands which you need to wear all weekend to gain entrance to the showground. Each person has one wristband which is for both days and Saturday night's entertainment on the showground. Please don't lose it or take it off during the event as it costs 16 per person to replace it!

Please check all your tickets are as ordered before leaving the booking in area

Please keep to the speed limits shown, there will be kiddies, elderly and disabled people around. Repeat offenders will be removed for the safety of everyone.

Due to the dreaded elfnsafety there are to be no mini-motorbikes, motorised mini kiddie scooters and similar things and no bouncy castles so please leave them at home.
